Quest for Love

A year passes
A year begins
A few losses
Many wins
Games change
Life moves on
Home rearranged
Old world gone
New loves flourish
Old foes forgotten
New hope nourished
New dream begotten
Smile grows
Burdens lighter
Brow unfurrows
Poised fighter
Ready for now
Well set
Knows how
Will go get
Have all I need
Happy zone
Fear recedes
Never alone
Birthday wish
Is for more
The same dish
As just before
Awoken alive
Heart I’m made of
About to thrive
Quest for love

On Course for Destiny

With love, you want for nought
You’re happy, content, at peace
You don’t worry about the house you bought
You can work hard or have a life of ease
With love, you need not fret
The rest will all come good
You have everything you need to get
You’ve gathered all you should
With love, you are never alone
Your heart and arms are full
With love you always feel at home
Inspired, each day is never dull
With love, your path is clear
Be all that you can hope to be
You know who you have to hold near
On course for your destiny

Lucky Man

I’m a lucky man
Thanks to ancestors
Who made me strong
I’m a lucky man
Grateful for all I have
A life full and long

I’m a lucky man
With family and friends
Who rarely stands alone
I’m a lucky man
With loving growing kids
And a happy warm home

I’m a lucky man
Who has his health
And mind at ease
I’m a lucky man
With access to wealth
Can do as I please

I’m a lucky man
Met an amazing girl
When I least suspected
I’m a lucky man
Our love is divine
Though never expected

I’m a lucky man
I’ll be the best I can
Head high, walking tall
I’m a lucky man
Good and happy
Who gives thanks for all

Terrible Goodbyes

Since the beginning of us
We’ve been terrible at goodbyes
When it’s nearly time to go
You can see it in our eyes
There’s the sadness of parting
Knowing you will miss the other
Trying to drag yourself away, then
You need a moment to recover
There’s a reason we take our time
Wave at each other down the street
Say goodbye a hundred ways
Allow our pattern to repeat
Love, that’s what it means
Let’s always be bad at goodbyes
We can let this failing continue
It’s not sadness but love in my eyes

His Heart was too Small

A boy met a girl
And in no time at all
His heart was full up
His heart was too small
Too small to find space
For all the love that he felt
Full up near to bursting
So he loosened his belt
And he opened his eyes
And he breathed out all he could
Still his heart was too small
To fit in all that was good
He was grateful to her
For the love he now knew
So he listed his thanks
And his swollen heart grew
Just a little at first
Then he felt even more
So it grew and it grew
Three times as big as before
He felt love for her presence
Love for her voice
Love for her cuddles
He had no other choice
She attracted him wholly
Like no other girl had
Mind, body and soul
Which made him so glad
So so so glad
Like he was on top of the world
The winner, the hero
All because of this girl

Greener Grass?

Tell me what you see
When you are looking at me
Tell me what you believe
When you say you’re going to leave
Do you think there is greener grass?
Do you think all that’s good has come to pass?
You’re being hard, making no sense
Talking about us in the past tense
Without reason or seeming cause
You’ve pressed stop, put us on pause
I hear you tell me we are no good
That breaking ups right, we should
There’s a happier life out there to find
If we just let our entwined bond unwind
But you are my anchor, my centre, my heart
I’m no where near ready for us to part
So be warned I will fight for a you and me
Fight to keep us on track for destiny
We’ve had a bad moment, we’ve fallen
But we can get up and resume our calling
Because when I think of a life without you
It’s enough to change all, do all I can do
This was love and for me it will ever be thus
You’re my heart, my soul, I truly believe in us

The Woman with the Dragon Tattoo

Quiet contemplation, relaxed, at peace in a book
Cardigan, reading glasses, not worth a second look
No threat, no disturbance, nothing out of place
But for her there’s someone else under the surface

She’s not smiling but in the morning people rarely do
She’s looking ahead but it feels like she surveilling you
A second glance and her book is “the art of war”
Double take and you’re not sure what she’s here for

It’s hot and so she rolls up her cardigan cuff
And reveals her alter ego just enough
To see in ink, the scaled snout aflame with fire
The eyes of a dragon raging full of ire

At her neck the line of her blouse
Reveals more scales, the tattoo housed
This quiet librarian lady, meek and mild
Is emblazoned, embodies a creature wild

Where then does this fantastic beast roam
What is she like when set free at home?
No one else sees this lady’s darker side
The powerful carnivore she hopes to hide

The one who’s gone

She might be the one
Who becomes my home
She could be the one
Who means I’m never alone
Now that she’s gone
I miss her all the time
Since she’s been gone
Just want to make her mine

It’s coming home

It’s coming home
Joy is coming home
Smiling faces
Together not alone

It’s coming home
Ecstasy is coming home
Buzzing fans
Enter the winning zone

It’s coming home
Relief is coming home
Burden despatched
Released to roam

It’s coming home
Football is coming home
England triumph
For a nation atone
